Wales lockdown: Tesco 'wrong' to say period products 'not essential'
The Welsh Government has banned the sale of non-essential items in supermarkets during a 17-day lockdown. Under Welsh Government guidance, shops which have been allowed to remain open are not allowed to sell goods classed as "Non-essential" during the 17 days, which would normally be sold by businesses that have been made to close. Under the Welsh Government guidelines shops can sell products you can normally buy from food and drink stores, newsagents, pharmacies and DIY and hardware stores - as they remain open. Speaking at the Welsh Government's coronavirus briefing he said he was "Very sorry" a woman had been incorrectly told she could not buy sanitary products. Tim Batcup, who has had to close his Swansea book shop during the lockdown, said the Welsh Government had made the "Right call".
